'Babies All Wrapped Up' is an invaluable source of information for nervous parents-to-be; taking them through the necessary stages of pre-birth, birth and post-natal care (not only for mum and baby but dad too). Written in a warm accessible format, this book offers support of a practical, emotional and physical nature. Dr Winstanley has spent three years painstakingly researching the best medical advice from a wealth of midwives, paedriatricians and specialist consultants, resulting in a brilliantly informative but heart warming manual.
What's different about this book?
Dr Winstanley offers succinct information in easy-to-find chapters; taken from her years of experience as both a senior GP and a mother of 3. The book provides both essential medical information and also tips on the smallest detail to help first time parents in an accessible way.
Dr Winstanley has stated “I wanted to produce an invaluable manual for the first time parent without losing any of the warmth and cosiness felt when a baby arrives”.
